Storm Clouds

Last evening, just as the sun was going down, the storm clouds gathered lightning punctuated the darkening skies and thunder rumbled all around.  Anyone will tell you, I love a good thunder storm, so I grabbed my camera and snapped a few shots out of our windows.  Looking to the South-West, over the rooftops, the sun was still shining through the gathering storm turning everything golden.
But it was to the East where the best, most dramatic cloud formations were to be seen.  As always with these things, it is difficult to get the true scale of a scene from a photo, but you get the idea.
Soon, the rain began to pour down, turning the roads into rivers and our gutters into waterfalls - at least it cleared out the drains!
